Get Salma Hayek’s Sexy Hairstyles!

Hairstylist Robert Vetica was Salma’s mane man as she traveled throughout the U.S. promoting her new film Puss in Boots. She even gave him a great plug on Letterman the other night, calling him "one of the best hairstylists in the world!"

Here, Vetica shares his styling steps to help us recreate her sexy caramel-tipped blowout in L.A., the chic updo she had in Chicago, and her voluminous ponytail in Ft. Lauderdale on our own locks! Because, come on chicas, who doesn't want to look like Salma Hayek?

1. Salma Hair: Miami

Salma’s Voluminous Ponytail

With your fingers, pull your hair back into a ponytail; hold in one hand as you tease the base of the ponytail with a brush, then secure with an elastic band. “Teasing holds the band in place,” explains Vetica. If your hair is very thick like Salma’s, create two sections: First, section the top of your hair (which is everything above your temples) and hold it with a hair clip. Then pull the rest of it into a ponytail. Now wrap the top section around the base of the ponytail, pinning the ends with a bobby pin. “This creates extra height on top, too,” says Vetica.  

2. Salma Hair: Chicago

Salma’s Chic Updo

First, blowdry the hair with a round brush for smoothness and volume. “Don’t pull on the hair too much, so that it keeps its volume,” warns Vetica. Next, curl large two-inch sections with a large one-inch barrel curling iron, directing the curls away from the face. Clip the top section of your hair (from temple to temple and back to the crown) to get it out of the way. Now pull the hair on the sides of your head back into a ponytail, leaving the hair at the back loose. Wrap the ponytail into a bun and secure with pins. Then pin the hanging hair up and around the bun, leaving the ends out to create a messy effect. Finally, remove the clip from the top section, tease it to create height, then pin it back around the bun as well. Let a few pieces fall to frame your face.

3. Salma Hair: Los Angeles

Salma’s Fresh and Modern Blowout

Before her whirlwind premiere week, Salma had her hair cut and colored in Paris, adding long layers and golden highlights to her shoulder-length strands. “She has an incredible amount of hair, so this cut is perfect for her because it’s still long and sexy,” says Vetica. For the most flattering cut, ask your stylist to cut layers chin-length and longer, then consider adding golden highlights, focusing them on the ends of your hair. To style: Blow dry each section away from your face with a large round brush.
